3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden pour with a lively white head. The aroma is lemon citrus, hoppy goodness, and some mild yeasty dough. The flavor is super crisp lemon and orange notes with fruity dough notes and a grassy hop finish. Palate is medium bodied with supple caressing effervescence and a dry crisp finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a extremely large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent light yellow orange body before the yeast hit and deep dark yellow orange light brown after. The deep aroma was hoppy and floral. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The good flavor contained notes of deep floral hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. From Germany (bierkompass.de). OKT2011. Lot 412.
Rediculous amout of foam coming out of bottle all over the place before I was even trying to pour it. Not very easy to pour or drink since it’s foaming a lot. Lots of yeast sediment as well. Hazy yellow colour with incredibly oversized foamy white head. Fruity hoppy bitterness combined with Belgian yeast and some caramel sweetness in aroma. Flavour is Belgian yeast, bitter hops, sweet caramel, malt and spices. Quite strong. Alcohol warming well present. Interesting mixture of well hopped ale and Belgian Ale. Good but not exactly the cream of the crop.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A silly amount of foam came out of the bottle. Other than that, it smelled and tasted great. Even though this is probably an old bottle (bought on clearance) the hop aroma and flavor have stuck around along with an earthiness and woodsiness. A tasty beer, but with the sheer amount of sediment, I am guessing this is a fairly old bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample consumed at Cambrinus. Hazy dark gold with very strong carbonation. Aromas are a mix of tropical and citrus fruit, dank hops, and some pale malts. The hops continue their dominance in the mouth with earthy and floral elements, along with some guava. Malts provide some balance. It comes across as being boozier than it really is. Medium bodied. Too tropical for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (from bierkompass.de). ’kin hell what a gusher over the table, rug and couch. Or then I am an epic fail in opening Belgian beer these days. Anyhow, the beer poured a yellowish golden hazy thing, with a huge bubbly head. Aroma rather hoppy, with some yeast and also some bready and slight sweet maltyness. Flavour quite hoppy with sweet and bready malts along with some spices and yeast. Pleasant, and quite bitter for being Belgian. And yes, by writing this I have cleaned the table and saved the couch. The rug needs to wait for summer, so I can wash it properly...
